Trip of a lifetime

Empowering students through summer travel experiences

Travel Changes You

Overview

Welcome to Travel Changes You, our new campaign that shares the passion we all have for the power of travel. We’re sure it will inspire more students to realize their full potential. If you’re like us, travel has profoundly affected your life. Please tell us that story, show us that photo, and help expand student horizons in the process. Thanks!

Submit Your Travel Story

Write 150-250 words about your most memorable travel experience, and a photo if you’re comfortable. We’ll publish your submission right here with our own.
